HelpSystems Addresses ShowCase Users' Critical Need for Central Repository and Automated Management of Business Intelligence Assets

Major New Release of ShowCase Software Suite Brings Increased Usability and Flexibility With Executive Dashboards, Dynamic Drill Down, and Data Repository

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - November 05, 2014) - ShowCase, a division of HelpSystems and provider of business intelligence software for IBM Power Systems servers running IBM i, today announced the release of ShowCase 10, which responds to the critical needs of its most loyal users for a central, shared data repository and an automation platform for scheduled report delivery. ShowCase 10 also delivers new executive dashboards, dynamic drill-down analysis, improved reporting, and a redesigned, modern interface.

The new ShowCase Deployment Bundle expands basic ShowCase into an ideal data access tool for both technical and end users with a data repository accessible via the web. With the new built-in data repository, users are able to access their IBM i objects, saved queries, documents, spreadsheets, and other business intelligence assets from one centralized location via a browser. Built on world-leading automation technology from HelpSystems, processes and reports can be run and re-run, delivering real-time data each time, and results can be sent via email on demand or on a scheduled basis.

Existing ShowCase customer Meryl Crews from Summit Holdings said, "I am excited for this release. I was the person that brought ShowCase into [Summit Holdings] years ago, and I am so happy with the evolution your company has performed on this product."

Since HelpSystems acquired ShowCase in April 2013, the product line has had continual improvements and many developments leading to this landmark release. "With this acquisition, we made a commitment to continued product development and sought out ShowCase customers to see what they wanted in a business intelligence tool," said Janet Dryer, CEO of HelpSystems. "This release offers our customers exactly what they've been looking for and more."

Customers already using ShowCase can upgrade to ShowCase 10 by contacting HelpSystems sales. HelpSystems also offers a free, 30-day trial of ShowCase, which includes full product access and free support.
